Good Luck England

Getting our disabled citizens out into the community and to have great opportunities is a huge part of the work we do at Cerebral Palsy Midlands. Recently our clients who are huge football fans were taken to St George's Park, which is the FA's National Training ground where the English Football Team train and home to the England Football Squad.
Carer David Pittaway said; 'They really had a great time, it was a fantastic opportunity and they hope to get more chances like this."
They watched an Ireland vs Denmark Football Match and had front row seats. And to make their day even more magical, they also managed to get a picture with English Manager Gareth Southgate (picture right). So we thought today would be a great day to wish Gareth Southgate and the England Football Team all the best of luck from all of us here at Cerebral Palsy Midlands in their match later tonight against Tunisia. We will be routing for you to win!
Another visit last week took them to the Pirelli Stadium at Burton Albion FC where they watched a Portugal play Sweden football match. There a few pictures below from the two visits. These opportunities really do make all the differences to our clients and we will continue to keep out clients accessing the community in this way.
